    Sorry. I looked at so many pages of images. I posted in in Google images and it said it looks like "electronics." Thanks in advance for your indulgence.

    It is an Ethernet LAN port. Plug an Ethernet cable into it and you will see.

    Agreed. The symbol embossed just on the left of the port indicates a Network, same as on my Notebooks.

    Yes, the one in the middle is Ethernet and labelled as such I can't identify this port or what it's used for on my new laptop-image.png The one on the right is HDMI and also labelled I can't identify this port or what it's used for on my new laptop-image.png though a little hard to read.

    The bottom edge of the Ethernet port will hinge downward to make room for a full size RJ-45 network cable connector.

    Yeah, one of the 'benefits' of thinner and lighter with the newer Notebooks.
